Do developments in reproductive technology mean the end of sex as we know it? Should you still call Uber if you won’t get a real-life driver? And how dangerous are Internet hackers to the average person? From his base at the Stanford School of Engineering, Russ dives into such questions by asking his guests about “the future of everything.”

Worried about your kids’ teachers being too strict? Is homework drowning your fifth grader, or stressing out your high school freshman? Wondering if technology really improves learning or just creates more distraction? Dan and Denise talk about real-life problems with the experts who can help families navigate an increasingly complex education system.
